The Irish Heritage Trust partnered with Teagasc and the Irish Agricultural Museum to undertake conservation work and develop a new and exciting ‘3in1’ visitor experience at Johnstown Castle Estate, Museum & Gardens. The Castle at Johnstown is a gem of gothic revival architecture and opened in summer 2019 to the public for guided tours for the after restoration.  The castle is surrounded by spectacular ornamental grounds designed by Daniel Robertson and offer a range of beautiful sculptured walks, lake walks and a Victorian walled garden. The Irish Agricultural Museum is housed in the former estate’s farm buildings and displays one of the most comprehensive displays of farming and rural life in Ireland.

Johnstown Castle

(NH) We've been quite concerned this summer to see so many photos of birds taken at or near their nests, as well as of eggs and chicks in the nest. There also appear to be quite a few photos and videos circulating on social media of seabirds at their breeding colonies, taken in circumstances where disturbance has obviously been caused to the birds.

Please note that such photos and videos are illegal under the Wildlife Acts 1976-2018. It is a criminal offence to disturb any nesting wild bird in Ireland, and the National Parks and Wildlife Service requires anyone seeking to take photos or videos at or near nests to obtain a licence from them beforehand, and such licences come with strict conditions and are only granted in specific circumstances.

There is also the ethical situation to consider, quite apart from any law. Disturbing nesting birds exposes their eggs and chicks to danger, makes them more vulnerable to predators and increases the risk of the parents abandoning their young. We have a blanket policy of deleting any nest photos or videos posted to our social media page. No harm is intended, I'm sure, but that doesn't mean that no harm is being caused. ...
